British Classic Car Meeting 2013: The roads
This year, the British Classic Car Meeting will hold its 20th event in the Engadine. To celebrate, Classic Driver presents some very special exclusive photographs of parts of the ‘Jubiläumsstrecke’ route.
Rather than poring over the cars preparing to compete in this year’s BCCM, we thought we’d take a look at some of the most beautiful, yet challenging stretches of this year’s course. We asked Stefan Bogner of Curves magazine to select his best shots of the Jubiläumsstrecke for us – no doubt they’ll tide you over until the event, which is to be held in St Moritz from 11-14 July 2013.
This year’s route is split into three sections. From a starting point in St Moritz, entrants will travel the Maloja Pass to the demanding Vicosoprano region and back. The second route sees a return trip from St Moritz to Bivio via the Julier Pass, while the third takes the group along the wondrous Albula Pass, reaching a heady altitude of 2,312 metres along the way.
For the first time in the history of the BCCM, the driving and navigational skills of participants will be tested over three days, with a concours d'elegance taking place on the fourth. Additionally, a regulation rally on a surprise route will see entrants compete both individually, and in teams of four.
